I remember seeing Mr. Lester at the courthouse when I delivered documents to be filed each week. He always had a warm smile and showed so much father like kindness toward me. I will miss the loving ways he took care of his dear wife, Ms. Shirley and how he loved all of us at Beth Yeshua International. We will miss him so much!

I am so sorry to learn that Les has passed away. He was a kind and generous person and a wonderful husband to Shirley. Heaven is a better place with him in it...but he will be sorely missed here on earth. ~ Linda Pewitt

Dearest Mrs. Shirley and family, our hearts break at the news of Mr. Les passing from his physical presence on earth into his eternal rest. May our Abba Adonai bring you comfort, strength and HIS peace at this time of great sorrow. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Mr. Les was such a sweet brother in the Lord and will be deeply missed.
in HIS love,
Lisa Vinson
